The infographics use data from Engage’s Trendsetter app, a tool that cross-references polling data with influence and page “likes” from Facebook. Engage measures turnout by affinity toward politics and politicians, assuming that the more likely you are to “like” a politician of any party on Facebook, the more probable it is you’ll vote on Nov. 6.
In the week leading up to the election, Engage rolled out 12 infographics with BuzzFeed that break down what your preferences — for food and alcohol, television and books, movies and games — say about your politics.
- The Trump administration is rolling back an Obama-era policy aimed at protecting transgender students in public schools.
- North Dakota police have begun clearing out Standing Rock protester camps at the Dakota Access Pipeline site.
- Seven Earth-sized planets that could have water and possibly sustain life have been discovered orbiting a dwarf star, NASA announced today.
- Facebook is in negotiations with the Major League Baseball League to possibly stream one game per week during the 2017 season.
